The Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) is the group that globally coordinates meteorological satellite systems. This includes protection of in orbit assets, contingency planning, improvement of quality of data, support to users, facilitation of shared data access and development of the use of satellite products in key application areas.

The coordination is pursued from an end-to-end perspective, through development of multi-lateral coordination and cooperation across all meteorological satellite operators in close coordination with the user community such as WMO, IOC-UNESCO, and other user entities).
